from the SPUSA Statement of Principles....

THE SOCIALIST PARTY strives to establish a radical democracy that places people's lives under their own control - a non-racist, classless, feminist socialist society.

Update 2:


" where working people own and control the means of production and distribution through democratically-controlled public agencies; where full employment is realized for everyone who wants to work; where workers have the right to form unions freely, and to strike and engage in other forms of job actions; and where the production of society is used for the benefit of all humanity, not for the private profit of a few. We believe socialism and democracy are one and indivisible.

    Easily. Socialists laugh at comparisons like this one. Democrats are staunch defenders of the current capitalist system. Your efforts to move the parties and the country even further to the right have to be based on actual facts and not on ignorance and fanciful conjecture.

    Obama is in simple terms responding the way he consistently does whilst he would not desire to answer the genuine question........he incorporates it to a daft severe and then tries to make a factor along with his severe To my information McCain has not referred to as him a socialist as a results of fact he shared a peanut butter and jelly sandwich in kindergarten. Obama can not take care of what he represents now, so he has to make a shaggy dog tale out of it and take a examine out to redirect his followers. it particularly is a shame they are so surely redirected, isn't it? no person says obama isn't a tender talker. those against him do exactly not think of he's a competent chief. Obama can not counter that........he's under no circumstances been a pacesetter of something.

    Wow, a society where the little guy gets to jointly own and control the means of his or her production. So they have a say over their labor. So that the rich cannot exploit them in order to get richer, and women are treated as equals. where no one can act like they are better than you because they have more money. Where everyone gets to work and to have health care and not have to worry where their next meal is coming from or keeping a roof over their heads. How ridiculous is that! What is your point? Are you so rich that you just don't care about the little guy or are you just one of those GOP wanna be s and you don't realize yet that the GOP will step on you the same way they step on everyone that gets in the way of their self centered agenda.

    Deny it? Hell, many of them are proudly proclaiming it!! And berating President Obama because he's not moving fast enough to implement it!

    There is good and bad in all ideas. If you know how to read anything other than the Republican propaganda and Sarah Palin hogwash, you could see the bad in what the Republican Party is spewing. I am sooooooo tired of hearing that Obama is not a true American, and that anyone who does not vote with the Republican party are not for America, but only want us to become a communist country.

    Please read and study before spouting anger and trying to stir up the masses.

    This is laughable - you are quoting a SOCIALIST website - one that you obviously do not trust - and use it as if it is 100% accurate!!! So... you don't like the socialists but you use them as a source of your information? This IS a joke, right?

    Republicans dont understand what Socialism is...mainly because countries like Cuba that they THINK are socialis or communist are actually dictatorships

    You need to define socialism first.

    The easiest and best way is to take out a dictionary and look it up.
